Driving me crazy

The little things that make me want to scream!

It’s never just one thing at a time.

All I want is to be able to solve one problem

Before I have I to deal with another.

Unfortunately life is never fair.

My five minutes of peace is done.

Time to tackle the problems for the day.

Unexpected Mercies

If not for my friends

I would lie down in a puddle.

The tears would stream

Faster than the choking sobs.

Misery would be my constant companion

Instead a smile, a hand and a warm hello.

I am stronger because of them.

I can do more because of them.

I care.

And I know they care too.
